Where'd the weekend go?
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 12

Don't forget to get your tickets for the first game, or for any of Alabama's games this year, over at Check out their Alabama section, and their Bryant Denny venue schedule as well.

So I guess we have to start off Monday with some incredibly bad news: Simeon Castille likes to be loud and obnoxious...apparently at 2am with friends walking down the strip in Tuscaloosa. Sim was arrested for disorderly conduct on Sunday morning around 2am. It sounds like a bunch of bullshit, if you ask me. The police have withheld reports of what happened, and the employees of a restaurant across the street at the time said they didn't notice a disturbance at the time of Castille's arrest. The police chief even said "There was no alcohol. There was not a fight of any kind. He met the elements of disorderly conduct and that's why he was arrested." So basically, he was arrested for acting goofy with his friends after a night at the club. This is BOGUS.

UPDATE: Check out for the latest on this. Turns out I was right about it.

The Charlotte Observer has Alabama picked as their darkhorse to win the SEC. Niiiice.

I haven't been paying close enough attention, but Tony Barnhart said that Coach Saban may be downplaying Jamie Christiansen's injury just a touch. Christiansen suffered a strained quadriceps muscle last week. Coach Saban, when talking about the injury, quickly added that Leigh Tiffin has done a great job in camp.

The scrimmage Saturday was much better, defensively, than the first, but it could still use some improving, according to Coach. Wallace Gilberry was a standout on defense, and his numbers showed that. The Birmingham News went so far as to say that Coach applauded the defense.

Read more about our first opponent's (Western Carolina) scrimmages here.

Scarbinsky's latest column really didn't have any kinda direction at all. He jumped from AP rankings to Bama's latest scrimmage, to ball-carriers eating dirt.

Cecil, the king of reading between the lines, fills us in on what Coach Saban is REALLY saying in press conferences: like telling us that you're only as good as the last 40 players on your team. But, he also says that you can be successful by having a bigger competitive spirit as well. It's definitely a good read.
